A Heart’s Betrayal (Thomas Nelson, June 2015)

Emmie finds shelter in the arms of a soldier, but her secret could drive them apart.

When Emmie Croftner answered the door to her late husband’s home, she discovered an awful truth: her deceased husband was a bigamist. And what’s more, the home she thought she inherited never belonged to her at all.

Suddenly displaced, powerless, and ashamed, Emmie can’t stay in Wabash, Indiana. She makes a hopeful start for Fort Laramie, Wyoming, to find her friend Sarah Montgomery and a new beginning. But when she arrives, she discovers she’s pregnant—and without a husband. The new start she’d hoped for slips from her fingers.

But then she meets Isaac Liddle, a handsome soldier with a kind heart. When he begins to court her, Emmie wonders whether she could ever really be his—and whether she dares to tell him she is carrying another man’s baby.

    A Heart’s Betrayal is the fourth novella in The Journey of the Heart series by Colleen Coble. I love reading Colleen Coble’s books, but not a fan of novellas until I started reading this novella series! In this latest installment we read about Emmie Croftner, the sister of Ben Croftner (the villain of this series), and she is in trouble. Emmie’s husband is killed in an accident and when Emmie goes to his home to claim the home and the other things she inherited, she finds out that He already had a wife, so Emmie has no claim to any of the properties. Emmie knows she can’t stay in Indiana so she decides to head to Fort Laramie, Wyoming where her friend Sarah is, hoping to find a fresh start, but after she gets there she finds out she is pregnant with her “husbands” child. I loved reading about Emmie and her continued story. It was nice to see more characters in this book. Rand and Sarah are still part of this book but Emmie’s story takes the front seat! This book still keeps you guessing until the end and leaves you at a cliff hanger. I really did enjoy this installment and look forward to reading the rest! I enjoy the historical aspects of this book and the whole series! Colleen Coble is definitely an expert on this time in history and the US during this time. This book definitely kept me engaged from start to finish, leaving me anxious for the next installment. I look forward to the rest of the novellas in this series! I give this book 4 STARS.

    I am a huge fan of Colleen Coble. I have read every book so far in this series and loved them. This one was one of my favorites. My heart bled for Emmie and life smacked her right in the face. I felt as if I knew her personally. Coble is great at character development and she does not disappoint in this continuing story. The only problem I have encountered in this Journey of the Heart series is that the books are too short. I would love to see most pages. It reads more like a novella and can be easily read from start to finish in a short period of time.

    A Heart’s Betrayal is book 4 to the Journeys of the Heart novella series by Colleen Coble and I have been reading and reviewing this whole series, one per month. While I am glad that the author finally took her focus off of the main character of the last 3 novellas, I have grown very tired of the setting and find it difficult to engage with the new main character.

  • I liked this story about a girl who discovers she’s been betrayed and goes west as her only option. There’s some setup for a romance brewing between Emmie and Isaac, though Emmie doesn’t want to trust a man ever again. She also struggles with believing God cares about her.

    I’m still enjoying this series. A Heart’s Betrayal is a bit of a “refresh” for the series, focusing on a new main character. After a few things wrapped up in the previous book, I wasn’t sure how the series would continue, so I enjoyed seeing this new spin.

    I had a happy return to Fort Laramie, Wyoming for the fourth book of Colleen Coble’s set of six books, A Journey of the Heart. I enjoyed A Heart’s Betrayal as much — if not more — than the previous books. We again begin in Wabash, Indiana at the end of the Civil War, but now we meet the extremely engaging Emmie Crofter. Newly widowed Emmie discovers that her late husband was already married at the time of their marriage. With this news, her life in Wabash holds little promise and she makes the brave trip to join her friend, Sarah Montgomery, in Wyoming.

    The plot took several interesting twists and I especially liked the details of life in Fort Laramie and the setting in the American West in the early years of settlement. Very enjoyable fiction, with a nice mix of faith and romance.

    This is the fourth book I’ve read from the Journey of the Heart series by Colleen Coble. Each book could easily stand alone. I have liked them all so far I only ~ I only wish they were a bit longer. I always enjoy the people in the stories and hate to have their stories end.
    When Emmie husband dies and she finds out that he is a bigamist ~ she can not stay. She goes to start a new beginning only she didn’t plan on meeting Isaac. Isaac sees a haunted look in Emmie eyes – can he be the man to remove that look, to bring her happiness? I think you will like A Heart’s Betrayal. It is a quick afternoon read.

    Colleen Coble writes some lovely turns of phrase, especially in her descriptions of the landscape and the scent of the sagebrush. She deftly incorporates historical events into this book, including a failed treaty with Red Cloud of the Sioux. Coble also adds frontier life to the book with interesting tidbits about cooking, tents, dress and many other day-to-day necessities.

    The Journey of the Heart Series is entertaining historical fiction, but I’m truly hung up over the cost of the whole thing. Each book in this 6-part series is $6.99, which brings the total for the series to $41.94!! Outrageous! This series is great and all, but it is in no way worth that price when this story could have been one nice long novel for a reasonable price. The publisher has pulled a fast one on the readers.

    Imagine losing your husband and then finding out that you were not his legitimate wife. In this 4th book of the Journey of the Heart series we meet Ben Croftner’s sister Emmie, who finds that she must begin a new life away from the townsfolk who will discover her shame. Fortunately for her, she has friends like Sarah and Rand that take her into their home giving her a new start.

    In this installment the focus shifts over to Emmie and her tenuous situation. She’s been sorely used and sees no hope for her future. Isaac comes to care more and more for Emmie and I found myself routing for him. We even have an unwelcome visitor, or maybe she’s not visiting, that we thought we were done with show up again.

    This next installment in the Journey of the Heart series is short and sweet. Remember these are novellas so they go quick. Just when you’re getting into it it’s over. Kind of like a mini-series. I do wish it were longer but I’m enjoying the story and the journey. There is so much more to know about Emmie and Isaac and their back stories. Oh well. Thankfully there is another installment coming soon.

    I think we can all relate in one way or another to main character Emmie and I was glad to see Sarah with a fresh pair of eyes.
    This story is about love and loss and secrets. It’s about the decisions we make.

    Emmie instantly falls upon bad times. Her husband of just a few months has died and along comes his first wife and son. Emmie now has no family, friends, or home. She wildly sets out to Fort Laramie, hoping that Sarah will be able to take her in for awhile. Settling into frontier life is more enjoyable than she expected, but she soon meets Issac, Rand’s good friend. They both find themselves interested in each other, but can Emmie ever trust another man? Especially one who is just as charismatic.

    Consider this book a shoot-off series of the first three installments. Different main character, but same basic bones.

    Welcome to, what I’m terming as, part two of the Journey of the Heart series. This book introduces us to Emmie Croftner, Ben Croftner’s sister and reintroduces us to Isaac Liddle. We also get a glimpse into Rand and Sarah’s life after A Heart’s Danger.

    In true Coble style, this book plays with our emotions. Emmie Croftner is thrown for a loop several times throughout the book and I can’t help but sympathize with her. Can Isaac Liddle figure out how to cure the haunted look he sees in Emmie’s eyes? Will she let him? I can’t wait to find out!

    Overall, I loved this short story. It is the perfect addition to an amazing series.

    This was not my favorite book out of this series and it I did not like the flow of it as compared to the other books. I am curious to see how Colleen will tie this series up in the final two books. However, still a great book and still needed to be in the series.. I just wanted more character development.. Felt like it was a bit of a lull in the series.. Can’t wait for book five and six!!

    A Heart’s Betrayal … The year is 1866, the place is Wabash, Indiana. Emmie Courtney’s life looked perfect, until the death of a loved one turned life upside-down. The War between the states is over and everyone is celebrating.
    We are presently on book #4, of the `Journey of the Heart` monthly series. Author Colleen Coble wonderfully details the vast array of scenery. It’s difficult to follow the storyline month-month, as each novel publishes. I believe longer novels are best for reviews. Otherwise, it seems the reader just gets to the point and the storyline ends, til next time. However, I do recommend these books to readers who like Christian fiction or those interested in the reconstruction of the U.S.

    First imagine yourself in the 1800s. Then imagine losing your husband at a young age. Then throw in finding our what you thought your life was and who your husband was isn’t what he/it really is. That is what was facing Emmie Croftner in A Heart’s Betrayal.

    This as with the first three books were a very quick read. You could easily picture each character and the location of the book. The only critique I would have is that I would like to know more about the background of Emmie and her brothers.

    I am a new fan of Colleen Coble and I look forward to reading the next book in the series, Journey of the Heart!

    This is the fourth book in the Journey of the Heart book series and it does not disappoint! It continues on in the wonderful story that was started in book one, but it also introduces a new heroine! Emmie is a wonderful addition to the group we have been following and the excitement of all of them having to move to a new fort is what really keeps you going. It’s dangerous and filled with tension. The progression through the series has really kept my interest and since it is such a short read I can complete it in no time without having to get too carried away! Short, sweet and very exciting! I love it!

    The fourth installment of A Journey of the Heart, A Heart’s Betrayal, introduces a new romantic heroine, Emmie Croftner, to the storyline.

Now, I can’t wait to read the next novella, A Heart’s Promise.

    A Heart’s Betrayal was an exciting story! I think this may have been my favorite of the four novellas I have read so far from the Journey of the Heart series. With the introduction of Emmie, a new character is introduced who is innocent and emotionally wounded. The characters have to move to a different fort, which is a dangerous trip, especially for a pregnant Sarah.

    The drama continues in this series by Ms. Coble, I have to say of all of her books this series is not high on my list. Some of the characters are okay but as far as over the top drama goes? This series has a lot of it, I mean a women who thinks she was married but discovers that her husband has another wife? Very fanciful. Some of the characters are likable and of course we have Sarah from the previous books who finally has her happy ending after all of her drama. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

    I’m definitely looking forward to watching Emmie’s story unfold, especially as her love story with Isaac (who readers will remember as one of Sarah’s suitors) progresses. And while I thought the twist at the end was a bit predictable, I can’t wait to see what happens when Emmie explains everything to her friends.

    I was a bit surprised that the author would switch main characters in the middle of the series, but I quickly took a likening Emmie and instantly felt sorry for her. At around 100 pages, the story moves along pretty fast and before long Emmie is reunited with the main character from the other books. Overall, A Heart’s Betrayal is a bittersweet and heartbreaking sequel that I thoroughly enjoyed reading.

    I was very excited about Emmie’s story. It seemed like it would be full of intrigue and romance. We haven’t really gotten to the romance part yet, but this was definitely an interesting installment to this story. I enjoyed this novella, but I did end up wishing Emmie was a more confident, take charge type of person. She just kind of lets life take her where it will and I wanted her to be more adventurous and stand up for herself.

    Emmie Croftner has had a very hard life, and just when she finds true happiness, the rug is literally pulled out from under her. If you have been following the previous books in this series, Emmie’s last name should ring a bell for you, she is Ben’s sister. How could anyone forget the evil of Ben Croftner, and Emmie grew up in the same home, but she is nothing like Ben!
    As you can tell but the back of this book, poor Emmie has been duped into a marriage, that for her must have been an answer to her prayers. They were answered in a strange way, but who are we to question what God has planned for her. She has traveled to Fort Laramie, and is now embraced but her old friends, who love and want her companionship.
    No, the story does not finish with this book, and now I am waiting, patiently!

    Unlike books 1-3, this story follows Emmie Croftner (sister of jealous ex fiancee, crazy Ben) instead of Sarah and Rand. Emmie thinks she’s found her “happily ever after” until her husband dies suddenly in an accident and she discovers he’s not who he said he was. Betrayed and humiliated, she decides to travel to Wyoming to stay with Sarah and Rand. She meets a nice family friend, Isaac, but she’s determined to never trust a man with her heart again.

    Emmie is a character whom I immediately loved and empathized with; she has not have a pleasant upbringing and thought she was living a better life until in an instant when she opened the door to a stranger and her son. This part of the saga continues on with Sarah’s life and also reunites her with her best friend as well as welcoming Emmie into her world as well. Colleen does an excellent job with character development and also setting the scene and portraying how life must have been like for people during this time period.

    Colleen Coble continues her novella series with another endearing story. Although this is book four, it introduces a new character, Emmie, and brings her to Fort Laramie, Wyoming to join Sarah and the others from the earlier books. Emmie is the sister of Ben, who was so awful in the first three books, and it is refreshing to see that someone in that family was kind![…] As always, Coble’s character development endears Emmie to the hearts of readers, and her combination of danger and romance makes this a book that’s hard to put down.

    This one continues the story of Sarah but – A new character is brought out west (and of course Sarah befriends her) – Emmie – love her! Wow, what a deck of cards she was dealt! Now I can’t wait to read the next one, holy cow!

    As usual – great character development, great storyline. Easy to read, easy to follow, interesting, fun, heartwarming.

    This was a well written book with a quick hook and great descriptions of life on Fort Laramie and the increases tensions. And great friendship and communication between Sarah and Emmie. I like how it continued with Sarah and Rand’s story, and really set the stage for what is to come!

  • This book shifts focus on main character, which is fine. Enjoyable for the most part, but I really didn’t care for the abrupt ending. It’s another quick read. Looking forward to the next one.

    Just like with the rest of the series this was a good story. Even though this is the fourth book in this series you can read it as a stand alone but I think you will want to read them all together. I like how I feel as if I get a new chapter in the book each month. In this installment we get to know Emmie. You find yourself really feeling for Emmie as the person she thought was her husband turns out has some secrets that are very heart breaking. So not only is she grieving his death but she is now dealing with the secrets. I like how Emmie and Isaac’s relationship blooms in this book. A very fast paced light read for a day at the beach or a rainy stay at home day.

    Book four in the “Journey of the Heart” series is a great start to the second half of the series. A Heart’s Betrayal is the story of Emmie Crofton, the sister of Ben Croften, the villain in the first three books. Fortunately, Emmie is a sweet quiet girl who has just become a widow. Or is she? Was she actually married? No, because her husband already had a wife who has now came to Emmie to claim her house and all it holds. Emmie is forced to leave town and heads to Fort Laramie, WY to help her friend Sarah through her pregnancy.

    Once again, Colleen Coble has offered her readers a story that pulls them into the ‘realness’ of the time period and holds them there until the very end.

    Oh my word!

    Colleen will certainly keep you hooked with this series! Constant surprises. Things you never see coming! Twists and turns that make it nearly impossible to believe this was written so early in her career!

    A Heart’s Betrayal -like every other book in this series – deals with some very serious and devastating issues.

    It just goes to show that pioneer women really were as tough as I’ve always thought they were. It would certainly take a strong woman to deal with everything Emmie had dumped on her.

    Modern women could certainly take a lesson from Emmie Croftner. She had some ridiculous circumstances thrust upon her… but did she buckle under the pressure? Did she moan and complain that it wasn’t her fault and she wasn’t going to take responsibility for herself…

    The story continues in August of 1866, as Emmie Croftner realizes a broken dream. She travels west from Wabash, Indiana, to join her friend Sarah Montgomery Campbell at Fort Laramie, Wyoming. Shortly after arriving, the Campbells are transferred to Fort Phil Kearny, Wyoming, and Emmie finds herself uprooted again. Will Emmie find she is misplaced, or just where she is meant to be? (to be continued in next month’s issue…)

    A Heart’s Betrayal may be my favorite book in the series so far! This cover is probably also my favorite one so far. The pink sky, purple mountains, and lush green grass are beautiful!

    The second half of this series is off to a good start. I liked the transition to Emmie and her story. It is so realistic – a rather plain girl captivated by a handsome man paying attention to her. And what a tragedy when it goes so wrong. I really like the way Coble has immediately taken us into Emmie’s life and brought us to a place where I am ready for the next episode right now.

    Excellent sequel and new start!…Emmie’s got a lot to overcome and I can’t wait for her to come to The One who can bring her through it all! I’m excited for the next installment!….

    My Thoughts On The Book: This was the fourth installment from the Journey of the Heart series. This story could be a read alone but it really helps to have read the other three so that the characters are familiar and you know what they are referring to in their conversations throughout the book. This segment picks up pretty close to where the previous book left off. The main female in this story is Emmie Croftner. She has a sad little tale and as the reader and participant in the story Coble really gives you an amazing description of the rugged country side. Emmie develops a friendship with one of the soldiers, Isaac and if this book is like the rest then we will see a romance developing in book 5. The book is more like a novella than a novel. It is a quick and short read and that is the only thing I can find fault in.

    This is the fourth book in this set of small books and I guess it is starting a new storyline. Having read the first three books this one introduces us to new characters while including the others. I’m not too excited about this new storyline to be honest. Emmie finds out she is married to a married man who has a child. But now they are both widowed and things get complicated. I have to finish this series but I’m not really sure where things are going. I love the cover of these new little books but they are too short for my liking. Anyway, if you have started this series I recommend you keep reading.

    The latest installment picks up where the previous book left off. Its focus is mostly on Emmie Croftner throughout this book.

    You really get a feel for the rugged country side and the terrain in this book.

    Isaac and Emmie’s relationship is more a friendship, I ‘m guessing the next book will have them fall in love.

    These books are short reads in this series, I would like to have had them all compiled in one book.

    I gave this book 4 stars and I hope that you will given this series a try.

    It has been simply wonderful reviewing these as they are being released in small bite size pieces a month at time again. I absolutely love Emmie’s story of hope and looking for a way to begin again. However that isn’t going to be easy once readers discover Emmie’s secret. That is just like life in reality, it doesn’t come wrapped up in a pretty little package! For me, this one is my favorite so far and well deserved of 5 out of 5 stars in my opinion.

    Fans of historical fiction will want to read these books. There is a hint of suspense, but not so much as her current books. The romance is light and sweet.

    I am a huge fan of Ms. Coble’s contemporary romantic suspense…

  • As with the other books in this serial, I found this installment to be an interesting, fictionalized portrayal of what it would of been like to live out in the American West during the late 1800’s. I think that Colleen does a wonderful job of showing how fort life was, both the pros and cons of the different parties involved. I like that she introduces some new characters in this one too, and look forward to seeing where the series takes them!

    Colleen Coble does a wonderful job reminding readers via the story of the characters that we are familiar with and those who have been absent. I love how quickly a plot thickens for Emmie shortly after a life altering event. The faith that Rand and Sarah exhibit in their home at the fort is a warm embrace to the heart of Emmie. During a time of expansion in our history and trouble with various Indian tribes, the story reminds us of just how rugged the living out west was along with life’s threats from outside the fort.
